So I just purchased all the parts for my new system and need some input on what to do with my second monitor. Here are my system specs!

Fractal Design Arc Midi R2
I7 4770K cooled by a Phanteks PH-TC14PE_RD
Asus Maximus VI Hero
8GB G.Skill Sniper DDR3 1866Mhz (2 x 4GB)
Samsung 840 EVO 250GB
WD Caviar Black 1TB
Creative Sound Blaster z
SeaSonic 760w 80+Platinum
EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Superclocked ACX
Windows 8.1

So what I need help with is where to connect my second monitor. I will Be using a 24" BenQ 144Hz 1920 x 1080 monitor as my main screen and an older Samsung 2232BW 60Hz 1680 x 1050 as a secondary(already own).
I can connect both my monitors to the 780 Ti or I can connect the Samsung to my Intel HD4600. What will allow my main monitor to display at its full 144Hz and what will give me the most frames on the main screen? The second screen with be on a browser while I game on the main. I also record all my game-play.

Any help with this will be much appreciated.

Any reason why to go this rout? Will this give me better frames? Will this cause conflict due to one running at lower refresh rates? The Samsung will never have graphic intensive things running on it.

When u Install a Discrete Graphic card.....the Integrated Graphics will be disabled automatically

So connect the Display cable to the "EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Ti "
